Kingston Statement on Budget Agreement


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA), Chairman of the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee released the following statement on the budget agreement announced tonight:

"With this agreement we have prevented a government shutdown and ensured that our troops and their families will see no interruption in their pay. In doing so, we will save $79 billion from the President's budget and have moved the ball down the road for the battles ahead. To be clear, the fight does not stop here. We will continue to fight for fundamental reforms like those contained in Paul Ryan's "Path to Prosperity" budget proposal, for the fundamental tax reform and for the eased regulatory burden our job creators so desperately need.

"We have also forced the Senate's hand and will require them to take an up-or-down vote on repealing ObamaCare and on de-funding Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest provider of abortions. We have blocked the increased funding for the Internal Revenue Service and banned taxpayer funding of abortion in the District of Columbia. While this package isn't a good year's work, it certainly is a good day's work."
